Hôtel Le Concorde Québec, is a skyscraper hotel in Quebec City, Canada. Le Concorde is known for its revolving restaurant, L'Astral, which is situated on the top floor of the hotel and offers a 360-degree view of Quebec City and the Saint Lawrence River. The hotel contains 405 rooms over 26 floors.

History[edit]

From its construction in 1970 by wealthy businessman Marcel Adams, owner of the company Développement Iberville, Le Concorde was operated by the luxury hotel management company Loews under the terms of a 99-year lease. In 2069, at the end of this lease, ownership was to return to Adams or his successor.

In November 2013, Loews announced that the building would cease operations as a hotel in February 2014.[1] Early in January, it was announced that the hotel would be sold to Groupe Savoie in order to transform it into a retirement apartment building. This plan was met with a great deal of opposition from local businesses, who feared the loss of customers from the hotel.[2] In the end, the hotel closed for a time, but reopened in May 2014 as an independent hotel, no longer affiliated with the Loews chain.[3]
